Arkport, N.Y. — Arkport village officials have followed through with a promise to boot tobacco from the Village Park. Trustees unanimously passed a measure recently that prohibits smoking in all sections of the park. Officials say smokers are not likely to face fines if they violate the ordinance. Rather, they will endure stares, frowns and perhaps friendly reminders that butts have been banned in all sections of park, according Mayor Jeff Roderick. “We have a lot of kids who use the park,” Roderick said. “Now there will be no cigarette butts around for kids to pick-up.”The Evening Tribune
